Excellent car. Engaging to drive, but rides well and is very quiet. The steering is accurate and is not numb or feel disconnected. The interior feels like it belongs in a much more expensive car; I recently rode in a Mercedes M-class SUV, and it had nothing on the interior of this Jetta. Seats are very comfortable, and the telescopic steering wheel gives you a perfect driving position. Far more cargo room than the Mazda 3, Matrix, Impreza hatch.
This car simply feels solid, planted, and stable. A far cry from the Corolla/Matrix or Civic that Jettas compete with.
The 5 cylinder gas engine is strong, particularly with the manual transmission. Good low-end power; car accelerates well as low as 2000 rpm. Gets 27 mpg in mixed driving, 30-32 mpg on the highway.
The 5 cylinder gas wagon costs at least $4500 less than the TDI, and still comes with heated seats, heated mirrors, power everything, cruise control, power seatback, keyless entry, CD/Aux input, air conditioning, etc. I don't think the TDI is worth the extra cost; maintenance is more expensive and it would take me 8 years of driving to make up the high sticker price through fuel savings.
Reliability for the gas engined Jettas seems to have improved since 2005, so I am hoping this will be a reliable vehicle. It was worth the risk to try it for me; this is a great car. 10,000 miles so far and no problem whatsoever.
